    I've made thousands of dollars on craigslist. Once I get this commercial equipment sold it'd be like $1200 in the last 2 weeks.

    I spend a lot of time posting stuff there.

    There are a lot (A LOT) of flakes. It's like 60% of people don't show up or drop off the planet after saying they want to buy something. But I get a huge amount of value for what I pay for. It's free.

    I carry change money on me so I don't have to leave someone unattended, and occasionally arm myself when meeting someone I don't know. Also, when entering my home I don't turn my back toward anyone. "After you, sir."

    In general, when meeting strangers at arranged meetings I try not to walk with my back to them.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    I have a sneaking suspicion anything that guy was posting should have tripped off a crazy alarm.


    Having said that, there is a large market for classified ads, extending them to the internet was not only logical but a natural evolution in the way people conduct business socially. I have found so many things I would have had to of scoured for without craigslist.

    Yes boycott a site because people are idiots and do not take precautions when meeting strangers from the internet. Sorry but this is ridiculous anyone can murder anyone, it really has nothing to do with craigslist he could have put an ad in the local paper and chop chop chop
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    even the internet has its dark alleys that you should be careful treading through.

    Just shut the website down already!

    Instead of Craigslist.com I'm going to call it Murdererlist.com
    If Craigslist endorsed or turned a blind eye to things like this, your reaction would be justified.

    ^^

    This stuff used to (& for all I know, still does) happen from Want Ads in the paper. PUPPIES FOR SALE, FARMHAND NEEDED, MISS LONELYHEART LOOKING FOR MR. RIGHT, FREE CANDY


    It'll happen no matter what, unless people use good judgement and if they want jobs off the grid & such, then they need to meet those people in public places, & take other measures to ensure their safety. It's mere common sense when interacting with strangers.
